ECO Cinema "WASTED! The Story of Food Waste" - Can...

Presented by St. Augustine Film Society at St. Augustine Amphitheatre - Front Porch Stage

The St. Augustine Amphitheatre’s Green Hands Initiative, in partnership with the St. Augustine Film Society, The Golden Way, and Beaches Go Green proudly present the St. Augustine EcoCinema: A Four-Part Environmental Film Series featuring screenings of environmental documentaries.

April 7, June 16, August 4, and October 6 of 2020, the community is invited to view four documentaries addressing the environmental topics of plastic pollution, rising sea levels, food waste, and marine habitat destruction. The documentaries will be shown on the Front Porch at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre followed by a question and answer session with local experts and organizations to share information on ways to positively address these four areas of environmental concern. Parking is free and all four screening events are free and open to the public due to generous sponsorships made by the Friends of the St. Augustine Amphitheatre (FOSAA) and Maritime Creative. Seating on the Front Porch is on a first-come, first-seated basis.

“WASTED! The Story of Food Waste” will be the featured documentary in Part Three of the series on Tuesday, August 4. Produced by Anthony Bourdain, this documentary aims to change the way people buy, cook, recycle, and eat food. Through the eyes of chefs, audiences will see how the world’s most influential culinary masters take what most people would consider scraps and transform them into incredible dishes to create a more secure food system. “WASTED!” explains how food waste directly contributes to climate change and sheds light on how each of us can make small changes – all of them delicious – to solve one of the greatest problems of the 21st Century.
